Have an outdoor kitchen, use it for most meals. Leaking was never a concern, it seals better than the windows and entry door. Originally thought it was a wasted space and planned to find other use for it, now I can't imagine living without it. Fridge for drinks for parents and kids so we don't wake the baby while she's sleeping, easy sink for washing up outside. Stovetop area so the whole RV doesn't smell like bacon or sausage in the morning, or spaghetti or tacos in the evening. Cooking outside for lunch so we don't get all that heat inside in the middle of the day.

our first TT had an outdoor kitchen with a sink.. never used sink but did use the kitchen all the time. our current TT has a larger outdoor kitchen with more cabinets, fridge, microwave, gas stove, no sink or grill. like the current outdoor kitchen better. everyone has pros and cons but for us we utilize it every trip. point being you can find outdoor kitchen without sink if thats what you look for.

We have an outdoor kitchen, its the main reason we bought the trailer. Its the center of our activity when at the campsite. We never had a problem leaking at the kitchen. The living room slide is a whole different animal. The sink drains into our grey. We have everything set up out there. The coffee maker stays in the outside kitchen and readily available. We have only cooked on the stove inside once, and that was at a rest stop at the Bonneville Salt Flats due to a storm outside.

We traded for a 2019 North Trail 27RBDS last August and have thoroughly enjoyed its outside kitchen with small frig, sink and eternal grill, though we opted to use our portable CharGrill Grill-2-Go instead of the cheap included grill. I’m not sure if you’re concerned for a water leak at the sink, gas leak for the grill or water leak from external issues? I can tell you we’ve not had any issues with gas or sink leaks after almost a year, but we did initially have a real issue with an external water leak from a seam of the rain gutter flowing directly down to the outside kitchen hatch that wasn’t sealed well, causing lots of rain water to reach inside the camper and caused considerable damage to woodwork while still on the sales lot! Upon purchase, the leak was repaired, all damaged woodwork was replaced (including the kitchen island inside) and there’s been no issue since. We absolutely Love this camper and the service we’ve received!

Thanks for all the replies!

I was concerned about external leaks, but after seeing the coach...........

We ended up buying the Coachmen RV Freedom Express Ultra Lite 259FKDS.

It’s a beautiful coach and seems to be VERY well made.

Wife and I really really liked that trailer, nice kitchen area and King bed.
Great floor plan and likely would have been our trailer had we not opted for double entry doors.

Enjoy
